St. Augustine Lighthouse, St. Augustine, Florida

The St. Augustine Lighthouse is located on Anastasia Island, across the Lions Bridge from St. Augustine, Florida. The lighthouse was built in 1874 and has an active First Order Fresnel Lens. Although it is 10 feet shorter than the Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse, there are 16 more steps to the top. The restored keeper's house is now a museum. It is claimed that the lighthouse is haunted and there is paranormal activity both in the tower and on the grounds. Local paranormal tours feature the lighthouse. Photos taken in March 2011.


  1. Some fantastically photogenic lighthouses down there in Florida, Neal.I think the one above is my favourite. You there on business or holidays?

  2. Just a holiday, escaping the rain in British Columbia... Thanks for the comments..
